The Card

Graphics Card Front Angled

Gigabyte's card uses a mix of black and gray highlights paired with a blocky industrial design. On the back, you'll find a high-quality metal backplate. While the front design is very similar to that of the RX 6900 XT Gaming OC, the backplate uses a new, more complex design that looks great.

Graphics Card Dimensions

Dimensions of the card are 33.5 x 14.5 cm, and it weighs 1712 g.

Installation requires three slots in your system.

Monitor Outputs, Display Connectors

Display connectivity includes two standard DisplayPort 1.4 and two HDMI 2.1.

Graphics Card Power Plugs

The card has three 8-pin power inputs. This configuration is rated for up to 525 W of power draw.

Multi-GPU Area

The AMD Radeon RX 6000 series doesn't support multi-GPU. In the top right is the dual BIOS switch, which lets you activate the "silent" BIOS.

Teardown

Gigabyte's heatsink uses a vapor-chamber plate to draw heat from the GPU, while copper heat pipes spread heat from the vapor-chamber across the fin stack.


The backplate is made out of metal and protects the card against damage during installation and handling.
